Beyond the Void Simon Yates 2012 Canadian Tour

Don't miss your chance to meet and hear from a man who’s made an indelible mark on the sport of mountaineering. The Simon Yates - Back from the Void 2012 Canadian tour is presented exclusively by World Expeditions in association with the Alpine Club of Canada this November and visits Vancouver, Ottawa & Montreal for one night only.

Simon was etched into mountaineering history through the true-life events depicted in the book and movie ‘Touching The Void’ - one of mountaineering’s most harrowing stories.

After successfully summiting Siula Grande, Simon was assisting an injured Joe Simpson down a precipitous mountain in the midst of a violent storm in the Cordillera Huayhuash of Peru. Tethered by rope, Joe fell over a cliff on the descent and was left hanging over a gaping crevasse. With Simon unable to move and no communication from Joe, Simon chose to cut the rope, surely sealing the fate of the injured Joe Simpson. Miraculously Joe climbed out of the crevasse and his cries were heard on the eve of Simon's departure.

Simon has written three books, the latest entitled The Wild Within. He will sell and sign copies of this book at each of his events alongside a presentation about how the spirit of adventure has shaped his life. This is the first tour of Simon in Canada for a many years. His tours outside of Canada this year have been sell-outs so be sure to grab yourself a ticket while you can - they will not last. Simon will be flying from Nepal where he would have just finished leading a Damobar Saribung Traverse with World Expeditions.
